Nutcracker willow could be a possibility. Always catkins flying around. I will keep a close eye and pull out if they start to get more tree like!

buxus smells like cat's pee!

Ooh this is interesting. We have a variagated buxus and it STINKS of pee. Its down the end of the garden so we have always assumed that cats or foxes have been peeing on it. Maybe they just smell? 

Plant ID please!

Several of these little things have started to sprout up in my clematis pot. No idea what they are... can anyone identify them? The stems seems pretty robust already considering they are still only small. I'm pretty sure it isnt anything I planted last year.. (Ignore the little seedlings, think they are weedlets!) .

A new coloured flower has appeared on our indoor hibiscus plant. Usually the flowers are peach but today a bright pink flower has appeared. This is the first time in the 6 years we have had the plant. Is this normal? Or has something caused it? Much prefer the new pink!
